AUG 2015 Titan Arum @ Chicago Botanical Garden

The Chicago Botanic Garden's first flowering titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum), officially named Spike, is now on display in the Semitropical Greenhouse of the Garden’s Regenstein Center during regular summer hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily.

The spindle-like bloom is expected to reach its height of between 4 and 8 feet within two weeks.

NOTE: The exact timing of peak flowering is unpredictable. Extended viewing hours during the peak bloom time will allow visitors to experience the extreme sights—and smells—of the plant in person. On the evening the titan arum reaches the peak of bloom, the Garden will remain open to the public until 2 a.m.

The regular parking fee will be waived after 9 p.m., but visitors will be restricted to visiting the Semitropical Greenhouse only. No other amenities will be accessible.
